Beyond 2015's 100-day countdown to the adoption of the post-2015 agenda

The 100-day countdown to the adoption of the post-2015 agenda by world leaders in New York is over!

100-day countdown start date: 17 June 2015

100-day countdown end date: 25 September 2015

Why have we launched this countdown? We want to further pressure world leaders to be ambitious and courageous in this final stretch and to start planning the implementation of the agenda now, before the UN Summit in September.

What is new? Beyond 2015 has a special webpage on the Summit and has launched a media campaign from 24-27 September to pressure world leaders to announce plans for the implementation of the SDGs during their speeches at the Summit.
